    I enjoyed making these meatless patties- I served it on a bed of cabbage. Lots of taste packed in there. Ill will make them again. (I like meat too, these where a great change of pace)

    Bean burgers are good, but not something my family wants very often. We like them but won't make them very much, as they are not meat and we much prefer meat.
